I closed my Videoblock/Storyblocks account some time back. But now keep getting Verification codes in my email to access 'my account'. I am not trying to access my account...

I have tried to contact the site but no reply....the Verification codes keep coming....

Just in case this info is useful to anybody else. Just doesn't seem normal to me.

They sent this out the other day. The first time I tried to log in to the account after they completed the work, I was asked to enter the verification code they sent me. It worked and I've not had to use it since. No idea why you keep getting them, but if you were hacked then it sounds like maybe somebody did have access to your account and now they can't get in any more without the code. Hopefully support will get back to you soon...

We will be taking the contributor site down on Thursday October 8 from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. EST (USA).

Were adding more security to the contributor dashboard.

During this time, please do not upload any content
If you are logged into your dashboard, you will be automatically logged out.
Any work in progress, like uploads, will be lost.
After the update is complete, you'll login normally and go through our new 2FA process.

Thanks Spacestockfootage.
I closed my account so cannot log in with or without the verification code.
I'll send all to spam.
Glad it isn't a bigger problem!
